Bust A Move (Old Skool U-Hauls)

My whole body is now sore, except for my fingers (so I can still post), and I haven’t even moved the heavy stuff yet (that Young MC rec is a limited edition…call me, “Photoshop Pro”!). Anyways, I thought I’d relax and blow off some steam by doing this post. While in the car driving back and forth, loading and unloading, I’ve been able to listen to some CDs that have come out recently. Outkast’s Idlewild, Christina Aguilera’s Back To Basics, and Kelis’s Kelis Was Here…haven’t been able to get my hands on that new Georgia Anne Muldrow yet.

I’m not really feeling Outkast’s latest effort overall. I’d say I like the half of the first 14 tracks on the album, but none of it makes me go crazy like their older work. I guess when you raise the bar to where all your albums since ’94 are considered groundbreaking it’s tough to keep up, especially when you don’t really get along anymore. Maybe I need to see the movie?

Xtina’s album…well to me you can just throw away Disc 2. The other half, I like all the Primo produced tracks.

My favorite out of the 3, surprisingly to me, would have to be Kelis Was Here. With production by Will.I.Am, Cee-lo Green, Raphael Saadiq and Scott Storch you now there’s going to be some hotness (no Neptunes this time around). Don’t get me wrong, I like some of the tracks by Will, Saadiq and Cee-lo, but my favorite tracks are by the “lesser known” producers (I especially like Shondrae’s tracks). Kelis really shows her range and talent on this one and even though it may not end up being considered as groundbreaking as Kaleidoscope or as experimental as Wanderland, it stands out in its own right. Goodness from beginning to end.
